    How Cosamin DS works
    The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 chondroitin sulfate, stimulate the production of cartilage. In younger, healthier individuals cartilage cells would normally accomplish this task. However, as one ages, cartilage cells die off and are not replaced. This starts a cycle of destruction in the cartilage. There are also enzymes present that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride stimulates cartilage production while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to slow the progression of cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.

  • FAQ

    What is joint cartilage?
    Joints are the junction between two or more bones. The ends of the bones are covered with cartilage which serves as a smooth, resilient cushion that allows the joint to move freely. Joints also have a synovial tissue lining that encloses them and secrets a lubricating fluid. The stability of the joint is supported by ligaments that connect bones to bones; and tendons that connect the ends of muscles to bone. Cartilage in the joint is produced and maintained by its own specialized cells. When you do even the simplest of everyday activities, there is tremendous pressure on your joints. The protective cartilage cushion and joint fluid work together like a shock absorber to allow for proper joint flexibility.

    Why does cartilage break down?
    There are many factors that lead to cartilage breakdown:
  • Age
  • Excess weight
  • Inactivity or over activity
  • Injury
  • Genetics

  • Cartilage lacks a direct blood supply. It relies on nutrients found in the joint fluid to nourish cartilage cells and maintain its structure. When this process is affected by one or more of the factors mentioned above, cartilage can break down to the point where it can no longer work efficiently.

    Why did my doctor recommend Cosamin DS?
    Your doctor understands there are differences between glucosamine/chondroitin brands. Cosamin DS is the only brand proven to reduce joint pain in controlled, published U.S. clinical studies. Laboratory studies have shown that the combination of ingredients in Cosamin DS work better together than glucosamine alone. Published experimental trials indicate that the ingredients in Cosamin DS can protect cartilage from breakdown.

    How does Cosamin DS work?
    The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, TRH122 pharmaceutical grade chondroitin sulfate and FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride, stimulate the production of cartilage. In younger, healthier individuals cartilage cells would normally accomplish this task. However, as one ages, cartilage cells die off and are not replaced. This starts a cycle of breakdown in the cartilage. There are also enzymes present that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride stimulates cartilage production while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to slow the progression of cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.

    Why is Cosamin DS my best choice?
  • Cosamin DS—the #1 Orthopedic Specialist recommended brand*
  • Cosamin DS—the only brand proven effective in controlled, published U.S. clinical studies to reduce joint pain.
  • Cosamin DS—contains the full clinical strength of active ingredients- compared to other brands.
  • Cosamin DS—requires only 1 or 2 capsules daily for long term use.

  • When should I start taking Cosamin DS?
    Cosamin DS is more effective when used in the early stages of joint deterioration. Early action is always the best advice. If you notice changes in flexibility or joint function it is best to see your doctor. Your doctor may discuss with you:

  • Weight control
  • Exercise
  • Taking Cosamin DS

  • Cosamin DS can be used before the onset of joint pain and stiffness. For those who exercise daily or strenuously and are not experiencing joint pain and stiffness, Cosamin DS may be taken to maintain optimal joint health.
